Further to Beauty And A Beat by PostModernJukebox, a reader suggested this one, which after listening to (at least thrice), I really really like :
Again I prefer this version to the “real” one … much more character here than the corporately bleached Lorde original 🙂

I’ve been following PJM for a while now. They’ve remade songs I actually hated and made them gold, to me. My favorite of the vocalists is Robyn Adele Anderson. That lady could sing the U.S. Tax Code and make it sound sexy. 😉
LOL, yup very much, she’s very charismatic singer and woman, and totally agree she does stand out … as for songs I hate turned good, well not sure I’d have admitted to liking “call me maybe” before I heard her sing it !
She even made Psy’s ‘Gentleman’ sound good, and that is true ‘miracle work’…lol
Reblogged this on Ancien Hippie.
Thanks for the reblog 🙂
PostModernJukebox has wonderful Jazzy renditions of pop songs. Skaterboi, Lovefool, Take me to Church, Hey Ya!, Seven Nation Army, Oops! I did it again, call me maybe, Roar, guns n roses’ sweet child of mine, and my face Radioactive… There is also, all about that bass, bad romance, and all of me.
Totally, think I’ll be sharing some more tunes from PMJ, thanks for the suggestions 🙂
Great,… Excellent … Excellente … Excelente,…
Clowns scare me!
LOL, I thought they are supposed to be funny 🙂
Loved it, Don!
I love this. I enjoy hearing the original, but this has such depth. I’ve shared it to Facebook and credited you. Thank you, again, for bringing a lovely song/photo/thought to my attention.
You’re welcome as always Greer, happy when I’m sharing things that others like too, it’s job satisfaction in blogging terms 🙂
And, yes, very much, and well described, similar depth postmodernjukebox added for me, would like to have discovered them earlier … but hey, nevermind.
You should also check out their cover of Chandelier by Sia – Puddles does it too. It’s awesome!
I definitely will … if I can figure out which postmodernjukebox I like best I might post a series 🙂
